    Does anybody know if there is a way to adjust the brightness of the glance screen. I find that in light the glance screen is bright and easily visible but in low light the glance screen is dim and hard to see. I am curious if there is a way to keep it bright all the time.

    Am I the only one who is having this issue? Is it really an issue or am I imagining this problem?

    I think that if automatic brightness option is enabled in the settings, the phone will behave just as you described.

    You could try disabling the auto brightness, but I think it is very handy and I keep it on all the time. The power-saving option might also dim the glance a bit? I'm not sure though.

    Yeah, I tried both but neither worked. I think its something that cannot be changed. I just prefer to have my glance screen bright and easily visible at all times.

    You do realize the 640 has a LCD screen and not an OLED. If you like the Glance feature to be bright, you might as well set the lockscreen timeout to never since to would use the same energy.

    Actually not quite because the display isn't being refreshed as much by the phone's guts so it isn't thinking as hard.

    I believe night mode also dims Glance.

    Meh, I don't use glance screen at all, it was turned on for less than 2 days when it started to annoy me. Even if 640 had a full operating glance screen I still wouldn't be using it, what's the point of having a locked screen which isn't actually locked.

    I have the same problem on lumia 550. (WM10 OS build 10.0.10586.164)
    Dimming of Glance screen is very annoying, and practically makes it useless over night. I tried to turn off automatic brightness setting, but no succes.
    On my prevous lumia 520 glance screen worked fine - still the same brighness level. clearly visible.

    Can anyone help please? Thanks.
